Vermeer MX300 mixing system can be paired with up to two tanks at once to speed up horizontal directional drilling operations. The 23-horsepower Kohler ECH 7300 gasoline engine provides 350 gpm of flow.
The mixing system can be used with a 750- or 1,000-gallon tank. It has a wide-mouth hopper and suction hose for drilling additives, and the tapered bottom of the rectangular tank helps prevent additives from settling and building up, according to the company, and assists with efficient drainage. Measuring 40 inches wide, the MX300 can be mounted to transport two tanks inside a standard-sized enclosed truck.
The MX300 comes with a 16 gallon fuel tank and is convenient to service with access to the roll jets through the top of the tank and two drainage points that are operated by two accessible valves.
